About Jo

If you have never tried snowshoeing, you don't know what you are missing! We are often the only people out on the trails and we can go anywhere we can hike, no need for a groomed trail. The beauty of the area is always there but there's something really special about seeing it all coated in snow. The bare trees allow for views you don't see in the summer. Strap on some snowshoes on your next winter trip and see for yourself, it's amazing!

Jo purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Jo chose Minnesota

We go to the north shore as often as we can, sometimes several times a year. We finally decided owning a home 'up north' made sense for us so we bought a vacation home in Lutsen. Of all the areas along the north shore, Lutsen has the most activities nearby making it a great place to go for an active vacation. We love to hike, snowshoe, golf and of course, watch the 'big lake', all of which we can do within 1/2 a mile of our home.

What makes this cabin unique

Our home is one of only 12 homes that share 20 acres, it's not part of a resort so it's quiet and private but still really close to everything we love to do in Lutsen. We appreciate being out on our screen porch or deck and seeing trees and the lake, not other buildings. What made us fall in love with it is the decor. The home was built in 2001 and decorated right after September 11th so the builder's professional decorators chose a red and white and blue color scheme, it's very colorful and so unique. When we say it's cute, it really is, people love staying here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jo,



We have returned to Kansas and it is over 100 here today, not the beautiful Minnesota weather we have

grown used to this last week. A wonderful stay was had by all and hopefully, we will get to return sometime in the future.



Thank you for sharing your cozy cabin with us. We will be sure to pass the info to any of our friends who may be heading your way.



Thanks again,



Julia

Perfect Cabin well equipped and Perfect Location to enjoy Lutsen!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Lutsen Solitude in September 2017. It was our annual hiking trip up North on the Superior Hiking Trail and first time we didn't stay at one of the resorts. We loved the cabin! The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The location was perfect and made hiking from Oberg Mountain to Caribou Trail super accessible. There is also a new winery right next store which was an added bonus that we enjoyed every afternoon. Highly recommend this property and the owners were a joy to work with!

Owner's Response: We are so happy your first stay away from a resort was wonderful, you'll be sold on booking a home from now on. We used to stay at resorts too but we really wanted to have a home where we could invite friends and family to join us and have great gathering space inside and out. Now with the winery next door, guests have another gathering place they can walk to and from, it's fabulous! The hiking is beautiful around Lutsen and the biking trail at the bottom of Ski Hill Road makes it a great biking destination too. We look forward to your return, come in winter if you ski or snowshoe, our favorite way to pass winter months is incredible here, it's a great location in every season.

Convenient location for a beautiful area

  • 4 of 5

Property manager/Owner was thorough and prompt. Everything was in good order and as described. This was our first VRBO experience so we have nothing to compare it to, but did enjoy our time.

Owner's Response: We say our vacation home at 4 Lodge Lane is in the heart of all the great things to do in the Lutsen area, it sounds like you agree. One reason people prefer to stay in a home is cooking rather than eating meals out, it's what we do so we made sure the kitchen was well equipped. It really is a great alternative for families and friends vacationing together. We hope you'll come again, you should see this place in winter, it's picture postcard beautiful!

The house and location exceeded our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

From the booking experience to the communication with Jo to our arrival, stay, and check out, everything was fantastic! Jo was very quick to respond, forthcoming with important information, and helpful in every aspect of our trip. The house itself is extremely well maintained and well appointed. As my 3-year-old grandson said upon passing through the front door, "Wow!"

The home has great gathering spaces in the living room, dining area, deck, porch, and fire pit. I can't think of a thing we needed that wasn't there for us.

I highly recommend this property and would certainly stay here again.

Owner's Response: I am so happy you all enjoyed your stay over the long holiday weekend. It is ideal for families to comfortably rest, prepare meals and enjoy their time together when they get back from their outdoor adventures. I agree with your grandson, we've owned it since it was new and I still walk in and say "wow", it's just so cute. I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to share your experience by writing a review Judd. I hope you and your family can stay again if you return to our beautiful neck of the woods in the future.

Owner's Response: I'm so happy you chose our home for your return to Lutsen Paula, we've made quite a few changes since you were there last in 2014, new main floor carpet, new living room furniture, new Hi definition TV and a Bose Wave for sound. In addition to the changes we've made, the North Shore Winery opened next door last summer, Superior National Golf Course across the Ski Hill Road is undergoing major renovation, Lutsen Mountains has opened a new high speed chair and a new high speed gondola and the newest section of the Gitchi Gami Bike Trail opened at the bottom of Ski Hill Road, it's an area that just keeps getting better and better. There's lots to love about our home and location, it's great to hear you found it to be excellent!

Coming soon! North Shore Winery and micro brewery is being built across from our home. We will add an update here when it opens.

Enjoy a sleigh ride, sled dog ride, cross country skiing, or snowshoeing along Lake Superior's North Shore at Lutsen Resort less than 1/2 a mile away. Sleigh rides are also available at Cascade Lodge.
